  1. Lately in TV Shows and commercials, I have seen not Apple Hardware, but I recognize Loops from GarageBand in the sound track. There was a Budweiser commercial that I remember hearing Apple Loops in, and a lot of times o the Discovery Channel during shows, you can hear Apple Loops. Its kind of neat to think of all the shows that not only prominently feature Mac Hardware, and loops, but were also probably produced and edited on Macs.

  2. Anyone who owns a Mac should seriously thing about buying this bundle.




    For $49 you get the following apps:




    25% of your $49 is donated to one of the following charities:




    This is an amazing deal and shouldn't be passed up. SPREAD THE WORD!


    *NOTE* The Bundle went on Sale on December 11th and is available until December 17th. The earlier in the week that you buy it, supposedly the cheaper it will be. The price is supposed to rise over the week. If $50,000 gets donated through bundle sales (Roughly 4,018 bundles sold) every purchaser (whether you purchased before 50k or after) get a free license to NewsFire. If $100,000 gets donated through bundle sales (roughly 8,036 bundles) than everyone gets a free license to TextMate. Thats right TEXTMATE! FREE!

  3. Recently I opened up Photo Booth and saw that in the effects 1 pallette the effect "Pop Art" looked strange. The only square that was showing video was the red one (top left corner) and the rest of the squares were yellow:



    (Pictured above: Screenshot of what is going on in Photo Booth).


    Does anyone know what is going on? I couln't seem to find a help topic in the Apple Support forum.

  4. On my iMac G5 up in the right-hand corner on the menu bar there is a little flag that can either be set to be A Canadian flag or an American Flag.


    To turn on the flag:


    System Preferences > International > Input Menu


    At the bottem of this menu there is a little box that you can check or uncheck, checking it will show a flag in your menu bar. Then when you hold down Command+Spacebar, it toggles the flags.

  5. I was thinking about doing a flash, but I do not have much experience with it. I am more adept at using cameras and editing footage, but if anyone knows where I can find info on flash animation I might try to use that.


    Does anyone have any ideas for character names or any ideas that I could use in the actual short animation or movie?

  6. I have had this idea for a short movie type deal aout Macs. I only have a breif outline of the sort of thing that I want to do and was wondering if anyone has any ideas to add.


    Basically it is a parody or a comedy. There are these people who live in the wold of .com (dot-com) where there are 3 major religions. Macintosh, Windows and Linux. I really don't have a definite story line for it yet but it is a working progress. Some of thge humerous parts would be a reading from the book of Jobs: "And Jobs said, thou shall hold down the command + option + Escape keys and all non-responsive programs shall be terminated."


    Just thought that I would put this out there for some creative input.
